IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card

Describe an area of science (biology, robotics, etc.) that you are interested in and would like to learn more about.

You should say:

Which area it is?
When and where you came to know this area?
How you get information about this area?
And explain why you are interested in this area.

Note: You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.

Model Answer:

Science is a vast field with numerous branches, each fascinating in its own right. It’s like an endless ocean of knowledge, where each wave brings something new and intriguing to the shore.

Which area it is?
One such captivating branch of science that I am particularly interested in is Astrophysics.

Astrophysics is a branch of space science that applies the laws of physics and chemistry to explain the birth, life, and death of stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae and other objects in the universe.

It has two sibling sciences, astronomy and cosmology, and the lines between them blur.

When and where you came to know this area?
I first came to know about this fascinating field during my school days when I learned about the solar system in my science class. The idea of vast, endless space filled with countless stars and galaxies intrigued me.

How you get information about this area?
To quench my thirst for knowledge about this field, I rely on various sources. I read books written by renowned astrophysicists, watch documentaries on space exploration, and follow the latest research and discoveries shared by space organizations like NASA and SpaceX on their websites and social media platforms.

Explain why you are interested in this area?
The sense of mystery and exploration it offers draws me towards astrophysics. It deals with some of the most profound questions about our existence – How did the universe begin? Is there life beyond Earth? What is the fate of our universe?

The more we learn about the universe, the more questions arise, making astrophysics a never-ending journey of discovery.

Overall, astrophysics is a field that combines scientific knowledge with imagination, pushing the boundaries of our understanding. It’s like a window that offers a glimpse into the past and future of our universe.

And that’s why I find it incredibly interesting and would love to learn more about it.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 : Follow up Questions

Here some examples of follow up questions that you may asked during your speaking part 3 by examiner related to cue card “describe an area of science (biology, robotics, etc.) that you are interested in and would like to learn more about.”.

1. Why do some children not like learning science at school?
There are many reasons why some children don’t like learning science at school. The first reason is that learning science requires a strong background in other subjects like math and reading comprehension. So, for example if students face problems in math, they wouldn’t be able to master science as well. Secondly, science also requires students to remember a lot of theories and formulas.

2. Is it important to study science at school?
Yes, science is really important to learn at school. Science tells students how the world around them works and functions. Moreover, science promotes rational and logical thinking, which is really important in making us a calm and objective person.

3. Which science subject is the most important for children to learn?
I think it depends upon the children. Personally, I hated physics because it involved a lot of 3D imagination and I was really bad at it. Some of my friends were bad at memorising formulas and so they didn’t like Chemistry.

4. Should people continue to study science after graduating from school?
If they have an interest in science, they should certainly study about it. It can tell them about the new inventions happening in the world. This can open up new business ideas and opportunities for them. However, if they don’t have an interest in science, I don’t think they should force themselves to read about it.

5. How do you get to know about scientific news?
I think there are some newspapers which publish the latest scientific news. For example, The Hindu newspaper. Another way could be to subscribe to scientific journals.

6. Should scientists explain the research process to the public?
No, I don’t think explaining the research process would be beneficial. In fact, I feel it would make scientific inventions even more boring. I think the research process should be shared with other scientists, but there is no use of sharing it with ordinary human beings.

7. What’s the best invention in the past hundred years?
I think there are many inventions which have transformed our lives, but I think invention of internet has had the maximum impact. Today, we have endless information available at our fingertips and we can communicate with anyone sitting anywhere.

8. What’s the influence of science on human life?
I think there are two main influences of science. First, science brings logic and reasoning in human life. It reduces the impact of superstition and makes us more open-minded and accepting of others. Second, science and inventions have made our life much more comfortable as compared to the past.

9. What can individuals do for scientific research?
I think most science inventions happen accidentally. Individuals see a need and they come up with an idea to address that need. That is how, new inventions take place. Individuals can also donate money to scientific organisation to fund scientific research.

10. What influence can international cooperation in science bring about?
There main challenges to scientific research in today’s time is the lack of funding and lack of access to information. International cooperation can address both of them. If countries share funds and their knowledge, scientific research would definitely receive a boost.
